ECS senior, Madison Szpaicher, has a lot to be proud of. After winning WIVB Athlete Scholar of the Month back in December, she was recently named one of only two seniors (one male and one female) across Western New York to win Athlete Scholar of the Year.

As part of the award, Madison received $1,500 to put toward college. She plans to attend Alfred State in the fall to major in management and play volleyball.

“It was truly a shock! Getting the recognition in December was an honor and then being chosen as the overall winner was amazing,” said Madison. “I wouldn’t be where I am today without all of my family and friends behind me!”

“I am very excited for all of Madison’s accomplishments. She makes a mother very proud!” said Rebecca Szpaicher, Madison’s mom.

ECS and all of Ellicottville are proud to have such an amazing student and athlete representing them as Madison moves on to the next chapter of her life.
